4 of us had dinner here. Nice decor. The service was outstanding, the food not so much. 2 people ordered the rib eye steak. Both were thinner than expected, a little well done and VERY tough. The haddock was fresh but had no taste. The...More
The most enchanting evening of my life. On entering the beautiful reception area down a small hallway of the Royal Mile I knew that the whole experience was going to be magical.

We’ve just returned from a 2 night stay in the Library Suite at The Witchery By The Castle. Our rooms were everything we’d hoped for and more. Grandly gothic in one of the most idyllic and atmospheric locations of any great city. The staff were...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
